Hello and thanks for entering this contest! This logo will be featured all around Toronto, including some of the best retail outlets, as well as the title sponsor on a number of large charitable organizations.
We have done most of the leg work when it comes to the logo mark concept and near-final design. Because we are a chocolate company, we wanted to come up with something that could be instantly recognizable, simple enough to be iconic (we can only hope!), and conjure up images of chocolate without being TOO literal (aka cocoa pods, or a rectangular bar with squares, etc). We settled on the idea of a square with a bite taken out.
We are relying on you, the designer, to take our image, and take it from 98%, and use your sense of perfection to literally perfect the design. Please note there is a variation with 3 teeth marks and a variation with 4 teeth marks. We'd like to see your version with both, so submit two versions.
EVEN MORE SO, we are COMPLETELY relying on you to come up with the perfect Font, and word mark for 'Chocolate Odyssey'. We are giving FULL CONTROL to you to show us your best options. Clean and simple might be best, but if you've got some crazy thoughts, by all means, show us what you've got. If you blow us away, you'll be considered a winner.
DISCLAIMER: We are perfectionists. Because the logo design is so simple, we need it to be perfect, and massaged until it just looks/feels right. One of the founders plans on having the logo tattooed on her as well, so it's got to be just right.
I'll leave the brief as is for now and check back in intermittently to comment on individual designs, and update the brief later on if more direction is needed.
Again, THANK YOU in advance, and GOOD LUCK!
